Hi there.

People are mostly playing the Bashes and JDC nowadays. The clan ladder has it's up and downs and currently it's definitely a down with matches brought up rarely.

However, that doesn't say there isn't anyone playing. As always, JJ2 appears to be at it's peak during the weekend evening hours (around CET timezones at least). Try finding some people in the Tests server, or if you just host battle someone named Jety is sure willing to dominate you.

And for hosting, be sure your network is properly configured for incoming connections. It appears that about any modern home router supports port 10052 better than many early-2000 ones did. JJ2+ supports different ports if required.

This reminds me, I haven't jumped on since the Unniversary Bash. I blame real life! Be prepared to see a newbie player on a mediocre connection every once in a while! :P

The thing that seems like the community really needs from an relative outsider's perspective is Jazz on digital storefronts. That's really obvious, I know, haha. It would probably do a lot of good to schedule an impromptu celebration event if and when the games ever make it online, though!

The only issue about that that I could see is making everything vanilla friendly for the rush of newcomers, but I can't imagine it would be too much trouble, and advertising Plus throughout the event would fix several issues. Heck, just having two servers for vanilla and Plus would avoid this problem entirely.

Well, with the latest Plus update there's an installer and people not using Plus will see it advertised in the server list, so I'm not sure there's much more to do on that front. Of course the trick is getting people to play the game in the first place... and JJ2 appearing in one of the big online stores would certainly help with that. So, fingers crossed (as they have been for the past decade or so).

Now that it's available on GOG there might be a bit of an increase.
